Koda is a 25 year old umbrella cockatoo. Koda spent 10 years of his life living in an attic with very little attention because he could be very vocal at times. He has lived with other birds. He does not like children.
Koda recently came out of his cage and really enjoyed being petted. With love and patience, he could make someone a wonderful companion. He enjoys coming out of his cage and standing at the highest point of it to watch all of the other birds. Occasionally, he will try to climb to other bird cages to say hi! He never has been aggressive with the other cockatoos, but all supervision should be heavily monitored between parrots.
Adopters will need to have previous bird ownership experience of a larger bird (Amazon, Grey, Macaw, Cockatoo, etc.) to take home a cockatoo. Multiple visits are required for all birds, but expect to make at least 5 visits before taking home a cockatoo. Households that have any children under 12 are not eligible to adopt a cockatoo due to their unpredictable behavior.

*Adoption fees are given once a bird is placed on hold and has been visited multiple times. Our fees vary based on age, health, handleability and length of time at our sanctuary, so our fees change regularly as each bird is re-assessed*
